Finally the US has the car that’s been in the news around the globe. Doing well in crash tests in Canada and Europe, now you can have the car that gets 60 miles per gallon. Run flat tires eliminate the need for a spare. Coup or Cabaret, auto or electric shift.

It performed well with two of us in the car, at over 450 pounds of passengers. Shifting the 6-speed electric shift or the fully automatic 6-speed matched the 3 cylinder turbo Mercedes gas engine with surprising power climbing the hills east of Elizabeth Colorado.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)1. What type of fuel does the Smart Car use?
Unleaded regular gasoline, 87 Octane.  It’s not electric and not a hybrid, but the size and power rating make it one of the most efficient internal combustion cars in production today, rivaling the efficiency of the current hybrids in America.

2. The Smart Car is so small; is it safe?
The designers of the Smart Car applied simple laws of physics to create a smaller car that takes automotive safety to a whole new level. In a collision, the car reacts in a different way than larger, conventional cars. The spherical geometry of the vehicle’s “tridion safety cell” is an aluminum safety-cage with steel reinforcements that is designed to hold its shape like the crash-cage of a racecar. The lighter weight combined with wheel wells in the four corners and safety features like dual airbags, anti-lock brakes and more results in a car that is safer than cars much larger than it.

3. How fast is the Smart Car, can it travel on the freeway?
85 MPH. The Smart Car is now legal on most U.S. road and freeways, but designers governed the top speed to enhance the fuel efficiency. Today’s urban drivers rarely have an opportunity to reach freeway speeds and the Smart Car was designed with this in mind. What it gives up in top speed, the car makes up for in drivability and handling. The 6-speed, on-demand manual/automatic electronic transmission combined with electronic stabilization creates sporty package that is fun to drive.
